Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the most common primary liver cancer, occurs in >90% of the cases on an underlying hepatic disease. Screening programs allow for diagnosis at an early stage where curative treatments can be proposed. In recent years, liver resection in cirrhotic patients became safer and achieved a key role in HCC treatment.
